Indiana Jones in Georgetown

September 7, 2017

Hey isn't that?!  It was one of the greatest American actors of all time, Harrison Ford, dining on seafood pasta and steak at il Canale on Thursday.  Harrison Ford is of  Indiana Jones and Star Wars fame, as if the world didn't know it.

Lunchtime diners took pictures with the very friendly actor and many chatted with him.

Restaurant General Manager Matteo Russoniello was invited to sit for awhile with Ford, and they talked about...what else.. food. In addition to the main courses, Ford took a real liking to the dessert, cannoli.
